The Netherlands is the latest European nation to mount an assault on home education and family freedom to opt out of the state schooling system without a shred of evidence to support the contention that it is any less efficient or successful than schooling.
Leiden home learners are asking for assistance from the international home education community to focus attention on this unwarranted attack and resist moves by State Secretary of Education, Mr. Sander Dekker, to ban home education in the Netherlands.
To voice your support for fellow Dutch home educators, please sign this petition if you are a member of the international community: https://www.change.org/petitions/stop-the-ban-on-home-education-in-the-netherlands.
If you are a resident of the Netherlands or a Dutch citizen living abroad, please sign this petition: http://petities.nl/petitie/stop-verbod-op-thuisonderwijs (English translation here).
